About the Author

Etan Boritzer has worked as a journalist for several magazines and his poetry has been published in various European and American journals. Etan's travels and studies in the Far East and other parts of the world, have led to his realization that the numerous and sometimes confusing concepts of God should be synthesized and made more accessible to children. Etan Boritzer currently resides near Santa Monica, California, writing screenplays and more children's books.

Robbie Marantz is a freelance illustrator living in New York City. She grew up in Los Angeles and was educated at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

This is a thoughtful introduction to the many meanings of God, to the world's religions, and the author even gives a moment's thought to the many ways to pray.--Christine Watson"Santa Cruz Sentinel" (11/23/1990)
How I wish I'd found this book ten years ago.... When I stumbled on this book two months ago, I was thrilled. Critics might see it as a soft-core, everything-and-the-kitchen-sick approach to discussing religion, but that's exactly what I needed.-- (10/01/2008)
A delightfully ecumenical book that answers questions straightforwardly and stresses the similarities of the world's religions in simple language. The color pictures are whimsical and sure to delight readers of all ages.--Washington Post
Etan Boritzer provides young people with interesting, thoughtful perspectives to these types of questions about God... Many spiritual questions are pondered and are presented in a way that shows that...ultimately we all believe in the same things.... A great addition to any home or school library. Highly Recommended.-- (04/13/2012)
